Guillermo Del Toro has said the cancellation of Silent Hills by Konami makes no sense whatsoever.

Well, his exact words were that it “makes no fucking sense at all”, but I didn’t want to put that in the first line. You know. Minors and all that.

Speaking with Bloody Disgusting, Del Toro also said the game would have had similarities to games such as The Last of Us.

“We had a great experience and had great story sessions with hundreds upon hundreds of designs,” he said. “Some of the stuff that we were designing for Silent Hills I’ve seen in games that came after, like The Last of Us, which makes me think we were not wrong, we were going in the right direction.”

Del Toro said he and Kojima had an idea for a “remarkable game” which would ” really go for the jugular” in terms of creating a panic for players through various mechanics.

“When you ask about how things operate, that makes no fucking sense at all that that game is not happening,” he continued. “Makes no fucking sense at all.”

Konami announced in April it can cancelled the game, but it would still work on the Silent Hill franchise in the future.
